Modern Materials Handling: Top 20 worldwide materials handling system suppliers in 2019
Rounding out the Top 10 is newcomer Material Handling Systems (MHS). Business units include Parcel North America, Lifecycle Performance Services and research and development offices in Mount Washington, Ky., as well as distribution and fulfillment offices in Atlanta.
MHS acquired control system integrator Atronix in November 2017, global integrator VanRiet in May 2018, materials handling equipment integrator A2i in July, and sortation specialist OCM in August 2018.
“The continued transformation of retail and labor trends push companies to invest more heavily in supply chain infrastructure and automation in particular,” says Tony Mouser, CEO of Material Handling Systems. “Strategic investments and acquisitions have come together to expand our capabilities as an efficient, single-source partner, while remaining singularly focused on doing what’s best for customers.”
